When the annual Peabody Elementary School Talent Show is announced, Penny immediately begins making a list of the acts that she could contribute, but everything she thinks of, from tuba playing to snake charming, ends in disaster. Just when she's ready to give up on the idea of participating in the talent show however, her best friend and canine companion Jelly shows her what they can do to make a real impression...

The first of two picture-books about this girl/dog duo, Penny & Jelly: The School Show pairs a sweetly engaging tale from author Maria Gianferrari with cute, colorful illustrations by Thyra Heder. This is apparently Gianferrari's debut, although Heder has two other titles under her belt. I enjoyed the story here, and thought that the text and artwork worked very well together. Recommended to anyone looking for picture-books featuring school and/or the loving bond between a child and a dog. ( )

This young and funny picture book introduces the soon-to-be star of her school talent show: Penny.

With a little help from her dog, Jelly, Penny tries out various talents—from dancing to unicycling, fashion designing to snake charming—with disastrous results. That is, until she realizes that she and Jelly have a talent to share that's unlike any other. Readers of Pinkalicious and Ladybug Girl will swoon over the talent of Penny & Jelly.
